The stork will be making a third visit to former teen singing sensation, Jessica Simpson and her husband Eric Johnson, and the soon-to-be family of five are over-the-moon excited about the news. The couple, who have been married since 2014, has one of the most solid marriages within showbiz, and make their kids and their family their number one priority. That's why we are so happy for them that they are adding to their brood.
The 38-year-old songbird, actress, and fashion designer’s newest bundle of joy will join six-year-old daughter, Maxwell Drew and five-year-old son Ace Knute, who seem to be extremely excited to welcome a new member to the family. And the Johnsons took to Instagram to announce the happy news, letting Drew and Ace do the honors by revealing the gender of their new baby sibling.
Simpson posted this photo with one word, "SURPRISE"...accompanied by an adorable shot of the two blondies bounding around with a couple of black and white polka dotted balloons that, presumably, contain the answer to the mystery that everyone is wondering. Drum roll, please.....
It's a girl!!!
"This little baby girl will make us a family of five. We couldn’t be happier to announce this precious blessing of life."
Even though Jessica and Eric were not married at the time of either of their first two children's births, they had been engaged since 2010. The couple finally tied the knot in 2014, with both little darlings in attendance.
Jessica gave birth to her first child in 2012, a daughter named Drew, and her son, Ace followed in 2013. And the beautiful family seemed to be complete.
In fact, as recently as May of last year, Jessica was adamant about the fact that she and Eric were DONE having kids.
According to Hollywood Life, “The news comes as a total surprise, seeing as Jessica previously said she would not be having any more children! ‘We got an IUD, nothing is going to get into that uterus,’ she told Ellen DeGeneres back in May 2017. ‘I have two beautiful children and I’m not having a third. They’re too cute! You can’t top that,’ she added. It looks like Jess and her man were probably just as surprised as we are!”
"Fans were overjoyed for Jessica and her big news! 'I’m so happy for you, Jess. I’ve been a fan since the beginning and am so excited for you to become a new mommy again,' one fan said in a comment. 'Omg I can’t wait to see her. You make the most beautiful children,' another excitedly said!"
No due date was announced yet, but we're sure that additional details will be forthcoming on the star's Instagram account. Please join us in wishing the entire family congratulations at this most fantastic of news!
